GRAPHIC SPECIALISTS:

Is your product getting lost or overlooked because the plain, clear packaging does not distinguish your product from the rest of the competition? Then Bunzl Processor Division has the solution for you. Our graphic specialists can help add some spice to your shrink bag or rollstock design – giving it that extra pizzazz – so that your product will visually jump off the shelf and creatively and effectively promote your business or brand name. So, if you have concerns about your current packaging design, or lack thereof, send us a sample and BPD will assist you to create a packaging design that is worthy of your product.

MATERIAL SPECIALISTS:

Using the ideal film in your rollstock or chamber machines is of utmost importance in making sure your production line runs efficiently and cost effectively. Using the wrong thickness of film or film material can result in tears, blowouts and improper seals which will not only slow down your production line, but ultimately could ruin your product itself. Bunzl Processor Division has material specialists on staff that, by working with you, can determine the type and thickness of film that will work best with whichever brand and model of machine you are using. Even if you are not experiencing any problems, BPD’s material specialists may still be able to help you. Oftentimes a processor’s packaging production line is running fine, but when our material specialists take a closer look, they find that the film type being used may be a little larger, or the material a little thicker, than is really needed. The processor can get the same output using a different film that will provide the same good results, but at price point that will pass along some cost savings. Our material specialists not only can help you determine the best film FOR your production line, they can even help you find cost-savings WITHIN your production line. And those efficiencies equal savings!
